Wow, are you people for real? Did you hear the same congressional hearing that I heard today?
I'm a vacation flyer on Southwest. I've never blogged before and can't believe what I'm reading. I fly only Southwest because of their 30 plus year great safety record and their great, inexpensive flights. My family is able to take many much needed vacations and weekend getaways on Southwest and I will continue to fly them. Here's why,
I heard the CEO and Chairman say that 1. Southwest has the best safety record in the industry, not to mention the best on time performance and absolute best customer service ranking. 2. They admitted they made a mistake when they told the FAA about missing two inspections out of 1100 pages of documents (you find me an airline that has never made a mistake) 3. they asked Boeing if the 43 airplanes were still safe to fly people...and Boeing said YES. 4. They asked the manager of the FAA if they could fly these airplanes for the 7 or 8 days that it would take to inspect them...and they said YES.
If you have a reasonable amount of pure commen sense, why would you go to another airline, when Southwest has proved it has the best safety record? And, why go to another airline when other airlines recently grounded hundreds of airplanes when Southwest grounded 40 or so airplanes?
I will continue to fly Southwest because of everything they offer and everything that they do right.
After reading your posts calling these people "murderers" and you hope they "burn in h..." I'm actually blessed that I won't have to sit next to you on my next Southwest flight. Heaven forbid I actually put my tray table down too soon, you will probably condemn me too. Maybe you should try anger management or find a hobby???
